    Time to install Teamspeak and take part in a great club race while you enjoy the banter. Ask as many questions about simracing as you like and don't be afraid as there are no stupid questions. The worst thing that can happen is that you'll become a better driver :)

    Wait? What is this?
    For this event you need absolutely nothing special. A copy of Automobilista, keyboard, console controller, or steering wheel it's all fine. Today we are going to focus on getting you safely out on the online track, giving you a great experience and making you a better driver with the help of seasoned veterans (kind of).

    Who can join?
    All premium members can sign up for this event. Sign up below and make sure to tag fellow community members who you think are up for the challenge!

    Something's come up :(
    We understand that things can come up that prevent you from racing. Please give as much notice as possible so that others can take your place. You must sign out no later than 1 hour before practice starts.

    If you see something say something!

    This race is dependent on Reiza releasing the new Stock V8 2017 and the Curvelo track before the event. If they don't we will switch to the MCR and a different track.

    Not sure yet. Have not tested myself. Do you have a recommendation? @CMGARAGE

    I'm happy with either.

    The newly added (to the beta) B layout is the one the actual Stockcars raced recently. It's shorter (by about 30 seconds a lap) by cutting through the track after the 1st turn. I like the flow of the shorter layout but its quite tight and the corner entries feel quite blind. It's great once you get comfortable with it but how feasible would it be at the start of the race with a full and eager grid?

    The A variant pushes the lap times up into the 1:50's with an extended first sector. I don't think it's as fun to drive solo but the extra road (including a slightly less tight turn 2) and lack of walls makes it feel more forgiving for a busy race. It might add a extra tactical element as there's more straights to deploy that P2P. In the shorter B layout the start/finish straight seems an obvious choice to deploy it and could possibly neutralise it's effectiveness. The final parts of the circuit are identical between the two, to the best of my knowledge.

    I took Friday off work so sign me up!! The A layout looks like better racing but B will probably be more suited for this club event :)
